Plant picture to come this week!
The name says it all! A cool one for your collection, this Hoya is famously known for its most amazing LARGE flowers and has beautiful glossy but slightly wavy dark green leaves.
This well established Hoya will come in a 6 cm nursery pot and should be about to pop out new growth this spring if provided optimal conditions.
Loves a warm but bright spot but with a good amount air movement. It likes a bit of humidity too if you can provide it. I’ve found mine does like to climb, so give it something when new tendrils shoot out. Feed with some liquid orchid fertiliser to encourage blooming during the growing season.
Provide shelter for it in winter, do not overwater! It does not like wet feet. It prefers dry conditions over wet conditions as it has succulent leaves that store water well.
Water only when the soil is completely bone dry, let it dry out absolutely between waterings, and then only when the leaves start to soften slightly. Never when the leaves are still firm. Feed weekly with diluted plant food during the growing season.
Note: Plant as pictured. First pic for reference only.
Colours may vary slightly depending on your monitor settings. We have tried our hardest to represent the true colour of leaves in the first reference image.
